Weekend is over… Monday… Week 2 of taper…

Ended off the week with 44 miles… Wanted to hit 45, but the difference  was peanuts. I got in 6 miles on Friday and Saturday, earned a rest day Sunday and today.  It is more important to rest anyway as no significant gains will be made during taper…

Had to go to a Grocery Gala fundraising event for the local hospital on Saturday night. My girlfriend is in sales and I get dragged along. The event was about as fun as it sounds, hanging out with all the “big-Whig” Grocery people, lots of drinking and mediocre food. They did have a Beatles tribute band, Rain, performing who were quite good. I drank too much and was pretty much out of commission for most of the day on Sunday…

Did manage to do some yard work on Sunday. We are still attempting to get a 20X20 ft patch of grass to grow. The sods layed last year have pretty much dried up, been raked to oblivion and are dead. Put down top soil, compost and some magic grass seed so we are now anxious to see if it grows some grass…

Today, another rainy day… Another rainy week actually. Better to have the rain on a Monday then a Saturday…

    44 or 45 miles is still a huge distance – well done
